This past weekend was the City of the Oaks half marathon.
I didn't run it, but I did get to see it!
After the marathon, something was up with my foot. It swelled up a bit and was pretty painful for a few weeks, so I did not run for three whole weeks. I was planning on running the half this weekend, but after only a handful of runs in a month, I didn't think that it was the best idea. I did, however, want to go cheer!
During the Chicago marathon, it was so inspiring to see all of the spectators cheering, yelling, and showing their support. I figured if I couldn't run, at least I would be able to give back and show some support for the other runners.
It was a gorgeous day and I got to see two spots the 8 mile spot and the finish. There were so many familiar faces!!
It was pretty inspiring to watch, too. It made me really wish that I had run it. Maybe next year ;)
Congrats to all the runners!
